Iran and the Nuclear Programme


On 15 October 2014, the European Foundation for Democracy, in cooperation with the European Leadership Network, hosted a policy briefing with Dr. Bruno Tertrais on Iran’s nuclear programme at the House of Commons in London. The event was chaired by Lord David Hannay.

The event focused on the Iranian nuclear negotiations and the likelihood of a deal between the E3+3 and Iran by the November 24th deadline, in the face of increasing calls for Iran to be involved in the ‘coalition’ against ISIS.

Bruno Tertrais is a Senior Research Fellow at the Fondation pour la Recherche Stratégique in Paris. He has served as Special Assistant to the Director of Strategic Affairs at the French Ministry of Defense 1993-2001, as Visiting Fellow at RAND Corporation in 1995/96, and Director of the Civilian Affairs Committee at the NATO Parliamentary Assembly between 1990-1992.  He has published widely on International Relations and Geopolitics, Conflicts, US Strategy, Transatlantic Relations, Security in the Middle East, Security in Asia, Nuclear Proliferation, Nuclear Deterrence, Military Strategy.

This was a joint meeting of the European Leadership Network, the APPG on Global Security & Non Proliferation and the European Foundation for Democracy.
